This week, we’re off to Italy for a taste of ‘la dolce vita’ with our newest self guided walking tour, Lake Como Trails.
Where is it?
Starting in Cernobbio you will amble along mountain paths to revel in panoramas overlooking Lake Como, enjoy the tranquillity of walking forest paths, stay in agriturismo and experience fresh authentic cuisine, as well as ride the Pigra cable car 880m above the lake.
Why walk it?
Planning and preparation:
This 7 night walking holiday is available from May to September and is a popular destination for its landscapes, wildlife, and spas, in addition to being a venue for sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. For those looking for a shorter trip, we also have our 4 night walking break- Lake Como Highlights
For getting to your starting point we suggest flying into Milan where you can catch the train from the city centre to Como (approx.. 1 hr). From Como you can catch a ferry (15 mins) or bus (30 mins) to Cernobbio.
This tour is graded easy to moderate as the walks are around 10-15 km and no ascents over 500m nor any descent more than 760 m. If you have a good level of fitness and/or are a regular walker you should not encounter any difficulty with the walks.
